60th Birthday

I turned 60 on January 23rd.  I've been looking forward to this birthday for a long time.  I got to spend time with a seveal of my children and grandchildren and talked on the phone to others that live farther away.

 Jacquelyn made me this chocolate cake.

Malachi, Layne, Andrew, and Mallory took me out to lunch on Saturday to Old Country Buffet.  That is such a fun place to eat at.  Lot of food.

 For breakfast Caleb and I went to Denny's for a free Grand Slam.  We were there at 5:00 AM in the morning and weren't the only ones there.  It was good.

On Monday went to dinner at Red Robin with Jacquelyn, Doranda, Tucker, Penelope, Scarlett, Leon, Talitha, and Caleb.  I had a great time.  I love spending time with family.

The biggest surprise of all was Friday evening.  Jacquelyn and I went to see a movie, The Hunger Games III, which was pretty good.  Then she threw a surprise birthday party for me.  I came out from the bedroom and there were a lot of our friends from church in the kitchen.  Probably about two dozen people came over to wish me happy birthday and have some cake and ice cream.  I was totally surprised.  It was great.  Thank you everyone for making my birthday special.
